Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

A- Sandy almost opaque color. beautiful beer. pale yellow witte dream.

S- wheaty grassy smell that ends on a sweet belgian yeasty note. really yeasty smell at the end. smells like fresh cut grass before tasting.

T- really crisp yet sweet, not at all syrupy taste. really clean and vibrant. a little citrusy, but more sweet grassy wheat taste

M- really nice and rounded, almost has the mouthfeel of a true belgian saison in that it's nice and wispy yet has substantial body.

a fine brew that's worth seeking out. i'm not crazy about wittes but this one is special, and definitely would be an instant hit among the saison lovers.

Review 100!!! The beer that converted me to a beer nerd, ngostagia value high. 12oz bottle about 5/6 weeks old.

A: Super hazy/cloudy bright yellow, lemonade in color. Thin foamy white head. Webbing.

S: Lemon, bannana, belgian/bready yeast, a hint of spiceyness. "Fresh", pungent for a 5% witbier.

T: Similar to S, Banana/lemon bright citrus notes up front, white bread, yeast, pixie stick sugar candy, a hint of sweaty/barnyard funkyness, has a nice green apple crisp finish. Very sweet beer all around.

M: Highly Carbonated, rather light/watery, nice syrupy aspect, very sessionable.

O: My favorite wheat based beer still, complex, light, flavorful but not overwhelming, absolutely awesome. This beer will always hold a special place in my heart. It taste better out of a 750 (that you drink by yourself out of the bottle).

12oz Bottle - from Whole foods san francisco for 2.49$ - thanks to j for this one

Appearance - Hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes..

Smell - Lemon, grains, yeast, coriander/cloves, a tiny bit of funk

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste lemons, floral notes, and grains/bread. There is also some very light yeast/spice. It ends with a grainy aftertaste with a light spicy/floral taste.

Overall - Very light and the flavours are fairly subdued. The mouthfeel is perfectly fitting for the style, very light and lively. I was expecting a little more taste, but the flavours are delicious. I've been wanting to try this one for a while and while it isn't mind blowing, I can see why it's one of the higher rated beers within the style.

a: cloudy straw yellow body. fingers worth of creamy bright white head displays better than average staying power.

s: wheat, yeast and corriander stand out the most. in the background subtle hints of pepper, lemon and orange help blend this one together.

t: everything i could smell i can taste. the main difference being that the yeast plays a bigger role.

m: medium light bodywith great carbonation. crisp and refreshing with a spicy inish, but not overpowering on the spice.

o: one of the best whites out there.
